Friday Five: What's Red and Blue and Purple All Over?

Before we get to the Five: a query from RevGalBlogPal Susan Olson:

Thank you, revgalmatriarchs for allowing me to cut into the normal programming. I have been asked to nose about an article on young female clergy bloggers for a mainline vanguard liberalish magazine (I love pseudonyms). If you are a clergy woman (or RC professed religious), blogger, and 32 years of age or younger, I'd love to talk to you. If you are interested in talking, please drop me a line at susan.olson(at)aya.yale.edu. For those over 32 who are young at heart, I hear you, I salute you, I join you---but I'm in need of the chronologically young for this one!

Thanks,
Susan Olson (not Cindy Brady--she's Susan Olsen---and if you were thinking that, you're probably not under 32.)

And now, on to the Five.

Those of us who are in the United States have just been through quite a topsy-turvy election. During the campaign we heard a fair amount about red states and blue states, when in fact most of us live in some shade of purple. And so... a lighter look at those confounding colors:

1. Favorite red food

2. Tell us about the bluest body of water you've ever seen in person.

3. It's movie rental time: Blue Planet, The Color Purple, or Crimson Tide?

4. What has you seeing red these days?

5. What or who picks you up when you're feeling blue?

Dare I tempt the all-too-temperamental Blogger by inviting folks to link?
<a href=URL-GOES-HERE>what you want the link to say</a>

If you're not feeling that daring, at least tell us the name of your blog, if it's not the same as your username. And we'll do our best to stop by!

  8. By way of a test:

    I blew it, I should have linked to Hunt for Red October instead of Crimson Tide! A better movie, and with Sean Connery no less. Although, Crimson Tide has Denzel...

  24. Red, Blue, and Purple: Friday Five, What a fun simple thing to do?
    I even added a bonus. I had a birthday this week that put me way over the age limit Sue is looking for.

  25. I played.

    Blogger knocked me out the first time, so lets try again.

    Alas, I had a birthday this week that puts me way over the age limit that Sue wants.

  26. Friends, friends, why be so binary about this. Perhaps 32 and under is young, but that doesn't mean 33 and older is old---just magnificent. And I can't wait until I'm 33, since I'm currently 27 and have been for a long time. A really, really, really long time.
    I am however, too dense to figure out links so I'm not even trying. Okay, I'm also not trying because I'm out of town and because Sunday afternoon is the new Friday in my world.

  27. I played!

    Age is just a number. You're as old or as young as you feel. Today, I feel like 101.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I didn't write to Susan ('cause I'm too old), but I played!

    ReplyDelete
  29. But ppb, 45 feels very old today, even if Friday is the new Sunday or Sunday is the new Friday.

  30. I can't speak for the rest of y'all, but I am a young and fabulous 50, and I just played.
